I can’t imagine Pres. Obama has any interest in doing anything functional to change the current state of affairs re. Government warrantless surveillance of Americans’ personal info..if in fact he even has the practical power to do so. The only thing more terrifying than the Government engaging in this activity is the notion that a private corp. would be ‘sanctioned’ to do it for the Gov. (as if they aren’t already). A private corporation would have no accountability to the people!
Although more subtle, covert and thus more insidious than Nazi Germany, thanks to carful control of reporting by the corporate media that partner with the richest most powerful milt-nationals, we have allowed our nation to be carefully “crafted” into the most aggressive empire in the history of the world. Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, formerly with the FBI, is under a permanent gag order with regard to her case. She has since dedicated her life to helping other whistleblowers via her blog/pod Boilingfrogspost.com. Many whistle blowers like Russel Tice, formerly with Air Force Intelligence, Office of Naval intelligence and the NSA, have tried to tell the media what they know. In his case, on June 19, 2013, before an interview he was told the following by an MSNBC producer:
“We Don’t Want a Word on Your Allegations Pertaining to NSA Wiretapping of Obama, Judges & Activists”
Tice was quoted on Boiling Frogs Post as saying;
“When they were placing the ear-phone in my ear with less than ten minutes left till my air time, the producer in New York said that their lawyers were discussing the material, and at this time, they did not want me to mention anything about the NSA wiretaps against all the people and organizations that I mentioned. That is how it went down. I did say on the air that I know it is much worse and would like to talk about that some time.”
Snowden is trying to tell the world because the whole world is at stake, not just the Unites States of America.
